Creating A Brand Identity Through Custom Stubby Holders

Posted on 29/09/2016 by Henk KROON

When it comes to ensuring that your customers (both existing and potential) remember you days, weeks, months or even years down the track, creating a brand identity is essential. One such way to achieve this is by handing out promotional products, like custom stubby holders, as they’re something that people are likely to hold onto and reuse. In this article, we’ve explained how to create a brand identity using these holders.

Value for Money
One of the main reasons that these holders are such a fantastic choice is that they offer great value for money. Many of the promotional products available will set you back a pretty penny, so it’s understandable that you’ll want to look for products that aren’t as costly.

Graphics & Branding
Holders provide you with ample space in which to include your branding and other graphics. This ensures that, no matter which angle a customer looks at it, they’ll be confronted with your brand. The graphics can also be in full colour and matched to your brand as closely as possible.

Neoprene Colours
Many of these holders are made from neoprene due to its ability to provide your drink with insulation. There is a wide range of colours to choose from (including navy blue, burgundy, red, yellow, orange, green, dark green, black, white, pink, purple and grey).

Amazing Designs
Your choice of graphics and logos can be included on custom stubby holders. Whether you want to include a photograph, a drawing or some other sort of digital graphic, the finished product will look fantastic. Don’t hesitate to speak with a graphic designer if you get stuck.

With or Without a Base
For most holders, you have the option of having them delivered with or without a base. Without a base, there is less material and stitching that you have to pay for. With a base, you can ensure that the drink doesn’t accidentally slip out of the bottom mid sip.

Custom Sizes
It’s important to remember that not all cans and bottles are of the same size. If you have a particular drink in mind, you might be interested in a custom sized holder that is designed specifically to accommodate it. This will ensure a snug fit that is like a second skin.

Made in Australia
Many of the holders currently on the market are made right here in Australia, which means that you can support local businesses as well as provide your customers with a useful promotional product. People like to know that you support Australia, not overseas pockets.

If you’re trying to create a brand identity for your company that cements it as an industry leader with a rock solid reputation, we hope that you’ve found the information provided in this article useful. As you can see, custom stubby holders are a perfect way to achieve this – everyone uses these holders to help keep their drinks cold and to protect their hands from the cold. Don’t be afraid to ask for assistance if you require it.

Knowing everything on promotional balloons inflated with helium

Posted on 18/12/2014 by Lorene

Knowing-everything-on-promotional-balloons-inflated-with-helium-2Helium, the magic gas that allows us to pump up promotional balloons and to let them go in the sky. For unitiated people, it’s not easy to understand and to know all what we can do with it.
Here is a summary of everything you need to know to organize successful events with a wonderful balloon decoration.

1. INNOCUOUS
Helium is a rare gaz (low responsive), colourless, odourless, non-toxic and non inflammable. This gas was discovered in 1868 by a French astronomer named Jules Janssen. Helium gas is completely innocuous, besides it’s used for medical use mixed with other gas.

Knowing-everything-on-promotional-balloons-inflated-with-helium-Knowing-everything-on-promotional-balloons-inflated-with-helium-1

2. LIGHTER THAN AIR
Helium is 7 times lighter than air (that’s why inflated helium balloons fly), 50 times more compressible than water, has a thermal conductivity 5 times bigger than air and helium outspreads through solid body 3 times faster than air. This is THE major information to keep in mind because it means inflated helium balloons will not stay inflated as long as air inflated balloons. At this point, balloons’ quality is major. Of course, the cheaper your balloons will be, the thinner the latex will be as well (if it’s real latex) Knowing-everything-on-promotional-balloons-inflated-with-helium-3and the sooner helium will evaporate.
Clearly, if you’re organizing a party and want to inflate balloon with helium, never decide to inflate the balloons the previous day to anticipate or your balloons will be deflated the the D Day. It’s very important, while you use helium, to inflate your balloons at the latest moment. To give you an estimate, I’d say inflated helium balloons remain inflated approximately 11 to 15 hours.

3. MYLAR BALLOONS
We already said it, balloons’ quality is very important for the gas quickness to evaporate. Mylar is more resistent than latex,  it preserves helium 7 times longer than classic latex balloons.

Knowing-everything-on-promotional-balloons-inflated-with-helium-44.WHY SUCH A SPECIAL VOICE WHILE INSPIRING HELIUM ?
The duck voice produced when we inspire helium is due to the fact that helium replace the air in our respiratory tracts. As helium is less dense than air we usually breathe, the sound quickness is faster. The respiratory tracks will vibrate  faster and sounds will have a higher frequency. As a result, we’ll get a high-pitched and nasal voice. You’ll find here a good example with the  famous Morgan Freeman video and the fabulous Dolce & Gabbana advertisement.

All right, you now know the main things about inflated helium balloons. Keep in mind to choose balloons of good quality, ask help to promotional balloons professionals who will provide you advices and good balloons capable of flying.

Posted on 06/11/2014 by Lorene

Do you know Divage? I bet you don’t…yet. This is a young cosmetic brand which is growing very fast. Founded in 1999 in Russia, the mark is now targeting the Italian and French markets.  Its positioning « average range » makes it aim women like us, neither with very big income nor without. With a young and fresh communication, the young brand follows fashion and shares its good taste for joy, beauty and life though social media.

Divage-the-new-cosmetic-brand-which-builds-buzz-thanks-to-promotional-items (3)Divage-the-new-cosmetic-brand-which-builds-buzz-thanks-to-promotional-items (8)

For its development in Italy, the communication team chose what its considered as the best by young people : social media and personalized goodies! Divage mostly chose silicone wristbands and satin wristbands and added some personalized flags and other printed tee-shirts perfectly staged on Instagram. Why these promotional items instead of others and how have they been used ? Yana Nanova, the communication manager explains the role of these goodies and the different ways Divage used them for 3 different events :

-Event n° 1 : the GAMF (= Golffo Aranci Music Festival) from the 1st to the 14th of August 2014 in Sardinia. Divage was sponsor of the music festival and presented its products by giving free make-up, make-up artists’tips and promotional goodies. Satin wristbands were used to wrap gifts while silicone wristbands were distributed (new king of visiting card.)

-Event n° 2fashion show and gala dinner Divage on the 11th of August at Bagno Adriaco in Italy. The aim was to communicate on the brand, again. The main word was visibility. This time, satin wristbands was multi-use, showing the clever and creative spirit of the marketing team. Satin wristbands were used as hair accessories in the beautiful hairdressing of the models. Some mascaras were offered to women during the dinner, they were wrapped with the beautiful pink satin wristbands. Some other were just decorating the tables.

-Event n° 3 : During the Divage conference form the 22 to the 23 of September in Rimini, Italy. The aim was to present Divage products to different potential distributors of the brand. The atmosphere was more serious and studious but the promotional items did their effect anyway. Satin wristbands  injected some dynamism in this space decorating the table of work while silicone wrisbtands were given to the potential distributors with tee-shirts and catalog. Who wouldn’t want to sell Divage products after that ?

Divage-the-new-cosmetic-brand-which-builds-buzz-thanks-to-promotional-items (9)Divage-the-new-cosmetic-brand-which-builds-buzz-thanks-to-promotional-items (10)

Divage chose promotional items to push the development of the brand and to increase its visibility towards the public and the distributors. By using these goodies, the aim was clear : silicone wristbands were useful to remind the name of the company in people’s mind. With its punchy colors, the silicone wristbands were a physical  and visible trace of the brand and they were fun enough to be worn. Satin wristbands were a perfect support of Divage image on different « scenes » : decoration on table, fashion hair accessories or simple ribbon for gift, this product is simple, useful and beautiful.

For Yana, the importance of using promotional items to communicate is huge :  « I think goodies are less formal visiting card. People  remind us by wearing our wristbands and other people discover them. That’s why quality and design are super important. The more a product is attractive and fun, the more people will use it or wear it and the more they will spread the word by speaking of it or showing it to other people. We know where starts this communication  but we don’t know where it ends… »

Divage definitely understood the importance of promotional items to succeed in its development.
